Nowadays, photopletismogram (PPG) signals are used in respiration and blood pressure measurement, monitoring of the sleep pattern and also detecting of mental disorders, mainly blood oxygen saturation and heartrate measurement. The reason of the use of PPG signals instead of signals such as electroencephalogram (EEG) or electrocardiogram (ECG) is easy to obtain and real-time monitoring of these data, as well as being easily used by people in daily life and easily integrated into wearable technologies. In this study, detecting of cardiac arrhythmia was made successfully by using double wavelength PPG signals instead of ECG signals
